Ingredients

Eggs Almond Paste Granulated Sugar Vanilla Extract Almond Flour Powdered Sugar Sliced Almonds

In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg whites until light and frothy.

Let's Make It!

Break up the almond paste and mix it with the egg whites along with the sugar.

Use a cookie scoop to evenly scoop out the dough. Then dust with powdered sugar and add the optional almond slices.

Bake until the edges start to brown, then remove and allow to cool before enjoying.

Can I Make This Ahead of Time?

Either freeze after baking and cooled, or portion out into balls and freeze before baking. If baking from frozen, one minute will have to be added to the baking time.
